Mini Sanitizer Thank You Gift

Hey everyone!
Alyssa here from My Thoughts Exactly! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas with family :) I apologize for getting my post up so late, I've been out of town visiting family and I hardly knew what day it was! Doh!
Today I wanted to share a quick and simple thank you gift with you. I made this simple holder for a mini hand sanitizer using only my paper trimmer and spellbinders dies:
On the front I used the My Thoughts Exactly Many Thanks stamp set to stamp the "Thanks for everything"
On the inside I used a little piece of velcro so the flap will stay closed
For the handle I used some double sided tacky strip and I covered the tape with strips of Trendy Twine. I think it made a really neat looking handle!
I hope you all have a very Happy New Year!
<3 Alyssa

Holiday Giveaway! - IS NOW CLOSED

Giveaway is now closed
and the winners will be announced this weekend.

Let's go ahead and get a giveaway started.  This is for the new Berry Red and Holly Green spools that were released this month.  If you are a SU fan, these go really nicely with Real Red and Garden Green.  They also coordinate with the Christmas twines and the red also goes with the Valentine Cherry Cupcake twine.  I designed these to be used together, so you can mix and match them for more of a variety.  The two lucky winners will get to chose which one they prefer.  How awesome is that!!

So this let's get this going.  What do you need to do... you need to be a follower of  my blog and you need to comment on this post... with something NICE ;)  Giveaway will end on Wednesday the 28th at 11:00 pm CST.  The lucky winners will be announced next weekend.  If you want more chances to win, refer a friend and they need to mention you in the comment.  They will also need to follow the blog.  If someone wins that was referred, both of you will win.  So we actually could have three winners. 

There were quite a few last time that were not followers.... don't miss out this time.

Now, it's time to have some fun.  Enjoy!

Yay! The Chocolate Duo Will Be Arriving Soon!

Happy Thursday to all my twine-ers!  Say hello to Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine (brown and pink) and Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine (brown and blue).  Aren't they super fabulous?  I love them!  I tried a different type of twist with these.  The brown is really dark and I didn't want it to over power my pink or blue.  So I decided to do them a tad differently.  I've got one strand of brown with three of the other colors.  It gives it a softer color and doesn't wash out the lighter colors.  These should be available in mid January.  I will post updates as I get them.

So what do you think of these two new colors?  Do you know that gives Trendy Twine 19 colors!!  Yay!!

Candy Bar Slider

HI Everyone !!! Its Michelle from Scrappin with my bug !! I was so excited to be asked to be a guest designer today..... but before I could guest design Lesley asked me be to a full time designer! So I'm totally excited! I ♥ twine.....and I absolutely ♥ the color combos she comes up with!!!

I wanted to make you something for Christmas today! So I made a reindeer candy bar slider!!! I actually made a ton of these as gifts! For some I taped a gift card to the candy bar!!!

 For the nose I just used Scotch glue which dries clear and used some Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine. I started at the outside and just swirled it until I got in the middle. Then I used some clear accents for on top of the twine around the edge of the nose and sprinkled course glitter on it!

For the antlers I wanted it to be festive so I used the new Holly Berry twine and weaved in through the antlers and added some cute lights !!!
SOOOO are you now ready for a giveaway??????

Trendy Twine Tuesday: Happy Holidays card

Bee here for Trendy Twine Tuesday! :-)
This is my project for today. I was scratching my head, trying to think of a new way (at least to me... ;-)) to showcase twine on my card...

 ...when I thought about twine "photo corners"... :-) Here I used Holly Berry for my corners.
I also couldn't resist adding a little bow to my wreath, and I decided to go with a more unexpected color: Sky

Everything is of course on pop dots, even though it doesn't show much on the picture... ;-)
The papers are from Recollection (Michael's own brand.), they're all glittery. The stamp is from My Thoughts Exactly, and was heat embossed.

I wish you all a very Happy Holiday Season. I hope you get to spend some time with your family and make new happy memories. <3

Can I Get a Big Hip Hip Hooray! Yay!! Valentines Day Twine is Here!!

Finally after months of waiting for this absolutely over-the-top color combination to get here -- it is finally here and ready for you to take into your loving and crafty home.  This newest addition to the Trendy Twine line was made just for Valentine's Day and is called Cherry Cupcake.  Doesn't that name just sound delish?  Availability is limited, so I wouldn't wait too long to grab this one.  Shipping will begin next week.  It's so super easy to get your hands on this yummy twine -- just go to Annie's Paper Boutique and pop it in your cart.  You won't be disappointed, but you will be sad if you miss this Valentine twist.

Christmas Ornament Ball

Hello Trendy Twine fans! There's a new crafter in town! Kasi from 19Eighty Expressions here posting my very first Trendy Twine design team project! Well, technically I am a *guest designer* but I'll be legit starting January 1st!

I decided to make something a little different than I normally make, ornaments made out of twine! Oh yea, you can make some pretty stuff with twine!

I made some in traditional colors.....

Peppermint Stick Twine

Twisted Lime Twine w/a hint of Peppermint Stick

And some in not-so-traditional colors....

Blueberry Twine

Blue Berry Twine

 I was thinking of glittering up these babies but decided against it since it may hide the pretty twine and unfortunately I didn't think to adorn these with pretty buttons or other embellishments until after I took these pictures (you know how time-consuming that is!) so here they are in all their naked glory.  I think adorned or not they are super cute.
Head to my blog for details on how I made these adorable twine Christmas ornaments.

Hi Everyone !!!! Its Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug. I'm sooooo flippen excited my for very first post on Trendy Twine !!!!

This month we are highlighting one of my favorites Chocolate Truffle. It is so pretty with 2 tones of brown mixed with the white.

I created a banner for my friend who is FINALLY having her first baby.....and I wont mention that she is nearing 40 ! LOL!

Since I wasn't able to attend her shower I told her I would do all the party favors and decorations. She wanted a banner that would grow with him. So this is what I came up with ...these are the colors in his room.
